This is my first BMW, had I known it was this good, I would have gotten one a long time ago. Test drove many others in its class but this car is head and shoulders above the rest. The others, although very well constructed and outfitted, were like riding on a comfy couch going down the highway, the BMW, you DRIVE. Ride, handling, acceleration all perfectly melded into truly an "Ultimate Driving Machine". This car is almost too much fun to drive. Hopefully it will not be too hazardous to my driving record!
Acceleration, handling, styling, comfort. I really like the Steptronic transmission, best of both worlds, I can play when I want and not have to constantly shift (as with a manual) in heavy Virginia traffic.
